Perhaps the word ‘allows’ is not appropriate. Boehner was complicit in the passage of a clean DHS funding bill that kept Obama’s executive amnesty intact with yet another Boehner special. If the injunction against the President’s execution of the amnesty doesn’t hold, we’ll have been cursed with yet another one.
Forget wailing and the gnashing of teeth. By now, you have either decided you’re done with more of the same or you have not. If you have not and wish to overcome this, resolve to be done with the usual. It’s time for the next steps and they don’t follow in the previous ones.
What those next steps are is subject to debate. Some say third party. Some say be more ruthless in removing the perfidious from office and continue to try and take over. Some say we have to give the wrong people good reason to do the right things. There’s also Levin’s Article V convention and state level nullification. It remains to be seen which one or combination of the above is the solution.
What is absolutely indisputable at this point is that the definition of insanity is not the solution. No, we don’t keep falling into line with the Republicans without question because (fill in the blank with a Democrat) or Greater Good. They’ve amply demonstrated they don’t stop Democrats and at the national level, serve no greater good.
So to start, quit listening to those advocating for more of the same. Tune out the fear and the browbeating tactics. Quit giving page hits and ad clicks to Establishment shills. There are a whole host of blogs on Badblue.com that would be happy to have you visit and many of them have better manners.
Quit letting your memory fail you and taking those claiming conservatism at their words each election. If your representative is Establishment, quit restricting yourself to artificial windows such as primaries only to remove them. Acclimate yourselves to split-ticket voting to help remove them from office, or at the very least blanking the lines of those who do not deserve your support (I did it to Gillespie to keep another Establishment politician out of the Senate, so I’m not just blowing air). Their calculations include conservative nose-holding and are thus far sufficiently valid, so stop doing what they want and change that calculation.
Forget unfocused rage and change to become what is necessary to fix these circumstances. If you want those saying they represent you to succeed for America, ensure their betrayals and failures have no other outcome besides losing their seats. That means no more definition of insanity ever again, and no more granting credibility to those that continue to try and enforce it.
